    Yes it's trick, but I could never be @r$ed to spend that much money on a mod that has no performance benefits.

    As I said people its only available on the sportier cars like S3, R8 etc, 2.0 tdi's arent what audi consider sporty no matter what we've done to them, lol & even on your car with new cluster it wont work unless it thinks its one of the already mentioned & I have the latest 30 byte module K, wont make any difference mate & that N version was sold.

    True, besides the early spec models without needle sweep belted out about 10kw more than those S3s with needle sweep .:p

    I read about the same thing on uk-mkivs.net

    There is someone on there who managed to do it on a Q7

    "The Q7 was a 2008 model and its just in the longcoding as one of the options in VAGCOM in the Instruments -17-.
    There was also a Lap Timer."

    So looks like your right about it only being available on certain models.

    Oops, just re read what I said, was kinda misleading. Can you see a faint black line below the FM, there isn't supposed to be a line there. If it's anywhere else on the display I would take it back.

    Mine has this line of missing pixels as well, it is booked in at the dealer for a new dashpod under warranty on the 14th.

    Is it really the case that this should be there as it just looks like a line of missing pixels to me and when I pointed it out they agreed to replace it under warranty?

    There is a line of missing pixels there on all DIS's, your would think Audi would know this. Maybe they need a few extra warrenty ££ for christmas bonus's LOL

    EVERY "red" display has this. It's the transition border between the top section (which is 'bichrome', in that it turns yellow for check engine lights, low fuel warnings etc.) and the 'red-only' monochrome lower section.

    Sounds like someone just accidentally bluffed their way into needle-sweep, by virtue of never noticing that it's ALWAYS been there!

    The needle sweep is a bit ricey TBH, besides it was a trick Subaru introduced on their Liberty/Legacy models about 7 years ago. So, not only is it ricey, it's also a bit old. Okay, it looks cool, but only for the first week or so. I don't even notice it now.
